6th International Conference on Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM 2019)
9th November 2019
National Library of The Netherlands
A satellite event of ISMIR 2019.

Many Digital Libraries have long offered facilities to provide multimedia content, including music. However there is now an ever more urgent need to specifically support the distinct multiple forms of music, the links between them, and the surrounding scholarly context, as required by the transformed and extended methods being applied to musicology and the wider Digital Humanities.

The Digital Libraries for Musicology (DLfM) conference presents a venue specifically for those working on, and with, Digital Library systems and content in the domain of music and musicology. This includes Music Digital Library systems, their application and use in musicology, technologies for enhanced access and organisation of musics in Digital Libraries, bibliographic and metadata for music, intersections with music Linked Data, and the challenges of working with the multiple representations of music across large-scale digital collections such as the Internet Archive and HathiTrust.

This, the Sixth Digital Libraries for Musicology conference, follows previous workshops in London, Knoxville, New York, Shanghai, and Paris. In 2019, DLfM is again proud to be a satellite event of the annual International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) conference which is being held in Delft, and in particular encourages reports on the use of MIR methods and technologies within Music Digital Library systems when applied to the pursuit of musicological research.


DLfM will focuses on the implications of music for Digital Libraries and Digital Libraries research when pushing the boundaries of contemporary musicology, including the application of techniques as reported in more technologically-oriented fora such as ISMIR and ICMC.

This will be the sixth edition of DLfM following very successful and well received previous workshops (in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018), giving an opportunity for the community to present and discuss recent developments that address the challenges of effectively combining technology with musicology through Digital Library systems and their application.

The conference objectives are:
to act as a forum for reporting, presenting, and evaluating this work and disseminating new approaches to advance the discipline;
to create a venue for critically and constructively evaluating and verifying the operation of Music Digital Libraries and the applications and findings that flow from them;
to consider the suitability of existing Music Digital Libraries, particularly in light of the transformative methods and applications emerging from musicology, large collections of both audio and music related data, ‘big data’ method, and MIR;
to explore how digital libraries and digital musicology can combine to offer richer online access to online music collections;
to set the agenda for work in the field to address these new challenges and opportunities.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Building and managing digital music collections
Optical Music Recognition
Information literacies for Music Digital Libraries
Data quality assessment
Access, interfaces and ergonomics
Interfaces and access mechanisms for Music Digital Libraries
Identification/location of music (in all forms) in generic Digital Libraries
Techniques for locating and accessing music in Very Large Digital Libraries (e.g. HathiTrust, Internet Archive) and musical corpus-building at scale
Mechanisms for combining multi-form music content within and between Digital Libraries and other digital resources
User information needs and behaviour for Music Digital Libraries
Musicological Knowledge
Music data representations, including manuscripts/scores and audio
Applied MIR techniques in Music Digital Libraries and musicological investigations using them
Extraction of musical concepts from symbolic notation and audio data
Metadata and metadata schemas for music
Application of Linked Data and Semantic Web techniques to Music Digital Libraries, and for their access and organisation
Ontologies and categorisation of musics and music artefacts
Improving data for musicology
Digital Libraries which enrich public access to music, music-cultural, and music-ephemera material online
Digital Libraries in support of musicology and other scholarly study; novel requirements and methodologies therein
Digital Libraries for combination of resources in support of musicology (e.g. combining audio, scores, bibliographic, geographic, ethnomusicology, performance, etc.)


We invite full papers (up to 8 pages excluding reference) or short and position papers (up to 4 pages excluding references). In addition to the general submission requirements below, we will require that camera-ready copy be received before 21st September 2019, and that at least one author per accepted paper is registered for DLfM by that date.

All papers will be peer reviewed by 2-3 members of the programme committee.

Please submit an abstract to EasyChair by 21th June 2019, and produce your paper using the ACM template and submit it to DLfM on EasyChair by 28th June 2019.

All submitted papers must:
be written in English;
contain author names, affiliations and e-mail addresses;
be in PDF format (please ensure that the PDF can be viewed on any platform), and formatted for A4 size.
Page limits for submitted papers apply to all text, but exclude the bibliography (i.e. references can be included on pages over the specified limits).

It is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that their submissions adhere strictly to the required format. Submissions that do not comply with the above requirements may be rejected without review.

Please note that at least one author from each accepted paper must attend the conference to present their work.
